TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – No charges were brought against 15 suspects in the Apache
case, including entertainer Janet Lee, as Taoyuan District prosecutors rounded up their investigation Friday.
The case came to light after Lee posted pictures of herself in front of and inside an Apache helicopter at a military base on her Facebook page last March 29. The images stirred up public outrage and doubts about security measures at sensitive military installations.
A statement from the prosecutors found that the 15 suspects had not violated any military-related laws with the organization of the visit. Lieutenant Colonel Lao Nai-cheng, the deputy head of the Army helicopter squadron in Longtan, Taoyuan City, invited Lee and several other civilians to the base, where he allowed them to pose for pictures with the Apache AH-64E attack helicopter.
